The Canes need as many points as possible, regardless of the opponent. We need at least 2 points out of the remaining two opponents on this road trip, so I'd say we attempt to get that out of the way early and get a win against the Islanders rather than worrying about trying to match up against the Devils.
Agreed, but Ward played just two days ago. And that was his 3rd consecutive game. Gotta rest him at some point and would rather have Ellis face the Islanders and have Ward against Brodeur(presumably). But will say it's too early to crown teams the "winners" and "losers" in the standings. Probably should have put quotes around "lesser" and "better".
